The Bonita Historical Society is dedicated to preserve, for public education and enjoyment, the culture, history, art, crafts, and aesthetic facets of the region, specifically El Rancho de la Nacion in South San Diego County.
About the Museum
Museum features exhibits of local history and fine arts. Stories of Bonita's 100-year history are told with artifacts, photographs. Displays include Native American culture, lemon orchard period, events of the flood of 1916, and transformation of family life by technology.
The Bonita Museum & Cultural Center was established in 1987 as a Bonitafest event, located in a storefront along Bonita Road. In 1992, through the generosity of the Bonita-Sunnyside Fire Protection District, the museum moved into the old fire house. The museum moved to it's permanent location at the Civic Center in 2006, thanks to the County of San Diego and the Bonita-Sunnyside community.
